Visit Bideford

The former home of literary great Charles Kingsley who named it the “Little White Town”, Bideford is a thriving port town with attractive shops, an olde-worlde Pannier Market and interesting attractions to explore, such as The Burton at Bideford art gallery and the Bideford Heritage Trail. It’s also home to traditional pubs, restaurants and cosy cafes that provide the perfect setting for devouring a Devon cream tea.

A Little White Town

From the characterful streets to fantastic family days out, there’s plenty to keep everyone entertained in and around Bideford. The Big Sheep and The Milky Way are popular with locals and visitors alike, or you can pick up a few bargains at Affinity Devon shopping centre, formerly known as Atlantic Village. Atlantis Adventure Park, found on the same site, is also great for little ones.

Want to soak up the sea air? Beaches including Westward Ho! and Instow can be easily reached from the town, with the Tarka Trail connecting to the latter. The path is also a great way to explore other surrounding towns and villages by bike or on foot.

Bideford is also one of the best places to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the UK, and thousands flock to the town centre in fancy dress to see in the new year.
